TH: Can we get a quick intro for the people who may not be familiar? Name, Age, Hometown & Occupation?

AFEEZ: My nam is Afeez Akande must of you might know me as Mr. feez, I'm 18 years old and I was raised in Nigeria but I live in Miami FL and I'm a college student.

TH: What would you say influences and gives you inspiration for your personal style the most? Music? Art? Culture? 

AFEEZ: Well I love music. I mostly listen to mainstream music and underground rappers. Fashion and music works hand in hand. Art is fashion, so I see fashion as an art work.

TH: What current fashion trend out there do you wish to see die immediately and why? 

AFEEZ: I don't see any trend dying soon because the all black trend has been going on for a while now and it seem that's not going out of style anytime soon

TH: Whats the one thing you normally start with when picking an outfit? Shoes, Pants, Top?

AFEEZ: I usually pick out my outfit at the last minute because I feel your mood should represent the way you dress for that day but I always start from the shoes.

TH: Who are the top 5 people you follow on Instagram for dope inspiration in the fashion and sneaker world and why? 

AFEEZ: My boy elevate_ldn, glynbrowntv, vls_joouptown2k (sneakers) and my reason for following them is because they dress differently from other people and it something I can relate to. uptown2k is just the sneaker man.

TH: Instagram and Twitter are great for the most part but they can both sometimes attract a lot of negative people who love to hate. Anything you would like to get off your chest or say to those people specifically? 

AFEEZ: True, but I love all my fans both the hated and the ones that love me. I don't pay no attention to the ones that hate me anyways. Like Kanye said "Your haters are your biggest fans" because those are the main people watching what you doing.

TH: What is your opinion on the recent Kanye x Nike x Adidas fiasco that has happened over the past month? 

AFEEZ: To be honest I think Kanye made a good decision about that. Nike doesn't give him space to design the shoe that he wants. They try to lock in to one place and they forgot this was the same man who brought the Yeezy 1 and Yeezy 2 that everybody went crazy for. 

I mean people camped out for weeks for this shoe. He's also the first artist (rapper) to ever design a shoe and sell out in a matter of seconds but I really think Adidas will take good care of him anyways. Like just wait and see what they got for us.

TH: Do you anticipate Kanye being able to translate the same type of success he has had in the sneaker world, with the Yeezy line, to the fashion world as well? 

AFEEZ: 100% sure he can. I mean this guy is the media himself, he runs the media. Like you can't go on tumblr or Instagram and not see anything that has to do with Kanye and he influences a lot of people including me myself.

TH: What has been your favorite sneaker pickup of 2013 and why?

AFEEZ: I picked up a bunch of sneakers but my favorite one is the Nike Air Max 90 Solar Hyperfuse. It's a very dope color way and a bright (loud) sneaker. It calls a lot of attention.

TH: If you had to wear one specific shoe everyday for the rest of your life what would it be and why? 

AFEEZ: Wow, that's a hard decision. But I will say the Nike Flyknit. Most comfortable shoes ever made by Nike in my on opinon.

TH: Besides fashion and sneakers whats your next biggest guilty pleasure?

AFEEZ: Music... I don't know why but it is.

TH: Any last words of wisdom or advice for the people out there?

AFEEZ: Advice from me to you is buy and wear what you like. Don't let anybody tell you you shouldn't.

TH: Where can everyone find and follow you on social media?
